Light tremors were reported in certain parts of the UAE last evening. The Sharjah Center for Astronomy & Space Sciences said that there were instances of tremors felt in certain areas of Ras Al Khaimah and the northern parts of the Emirates. The tremors felt in the northern Emirates however, had nothing to do with the quake that struck Iran.
Residents in the affected areas felt slight shaking as the tremors hit the region. The National Centre for Meteorology (NCM) of the UAE has said that the quake that hit Iran measured 2.1 on the Richter scale. The quake hit the Bandar Abbas area which is in the South of Iran last night at around 8.59.
